President's Message


We start the new year with a new Governor and a new City Council and with great hopes for a productive year. Much is being planned for League this year, that we are assured will be enthusiastically supported by all of our members -- whether by active participation or by a cheering section.

Planning and Zoning, ably co-chaired by Astrid Monson and Kathy Albu, began the year with testimony on January 14, before the Planning Commission on the 1986-87 Development Plan Annual Review package, and participation in the 5-Year Revision of the General Plan for Oahu. Representatives of the various committees are in the process of holding interviews with the new members of the City Council to apprise them of League positions and garner in-formation on their views.

Voter service has ambitious plans for the year. "Issues at Large", our Channel 20 TV program, co-chaired by Arlene Woo and Katy Loew, will be produced monthly this year. An evaluation of the program was held at a unit meeting on January 22. I attended , taping session on January 10, and was extremely impressed by the efficiency and professionalism of our Directors and crew. It is our hope that more of you will participate in this interesting and worthwhile activity, either in the programming or production aspect. Sign up!

"Running to Win", a workshop for aspiring candidates for office, first held in 1985, will be offered again this year -- bigger and better. Many of the participants of our first workshop are in office today, including our Governor, John Waihee. A "fun-run" to publicize the event is being planned, including a t-shirt sale.

Vote Count activity will be brisk this year, beginning with these elections scheduled for April: The various Neighborhood Boards, Mililani Community Association, and for these three Federal Credit Unions - Pearl Harbor, Oahu Educational Employees and Hawaiian Telephone Co. Vote Count coordinators are desperately needed as well as many, many vote counters.

The above-mentioned activities are some of the plans for 1987. There will be more to come! HAUOLI MAKAHIKI HOU!

Arlene Ellis
